Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Good Lovin' -- Grateful Dead and Earth Day

Good Lovin - Listen to Bobby, at 5:00 into Good Lovin'. This was at Olympic Center, Lake Placid, NY 1983-10-17. The band goes into an interlude, and builds on it, reminiscent of Lovelight.

"I wanna tell ya all about it now.
'Cause we gotta make it work some how.
I don't have to tell you what it's like these days.
Sometimes you can't see shit through the smoke and the haze.
You gotta have good lovin'."

The chorus builds up from there. Listen carefully to what Bobby says. The crescendo is brilliant. Surely, the lyrics are there on purpose.

Think about it. The band is standing up for our environment, and mother Earth - sustainable life on Earth, for all of us. They nail this theme in Good Lovin', the closing tune for the last set. And then, they come back out and do a tasty encore with "Revolution" - standing shoulder-to-shoulder with John Lennon, so to speak. The Grateful Dead should be in the "Hall of Fame" not just for their live music and many concerts, but also for all their activism and civic stewardship over the years.

Best Jerry Garcia quote ever spoken - "What we're thinking about is a peaceful planet. We're not thinking of anything else. We're not thinking about any kind of power. We're not thinking about any of those kinds of struggles. We're not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. We would all like to be able to live an uncluttered life, a simple life, a good life and think about moving the whole human race ahead a step."

Happy Earth Day
Sunday - April 20, 2008

*** You Can See That It's True ***

For 738 days Julia Butterfly Hill lived in the canopy of an ancient redwood tree, called Luna, to help make the world aware of the plight of ancient forests. Julia, with the great help of steelworkers and environmentalists, successfully negotiated to permanently protect the 1,000 year-old tree and a nearly three-acre buffer zone. Her two-year vigil informed the public that only 3% of the ancient redwood forests remain and that the Headwaters Forest Agreement, brokered by state and federal agencies and Pacific Lumber/Maxxam Corporation, will not adequately protect forests and species. Celebrity environmentalists including Joan Baez, Woody Harrelson, Starhawk and Mickey Hart rallied to help save Californian redwood forests.

Mickey Hart and the drummers form a circle near Luna and continue weaving their rhythm songs. All eyes peer upwards. The main top of Luna had been blasted away by lightning long ago, perhaps centuries ago, and a crown of big branches had grown outward, then upward from the top of the shattered trunk. Julia's platform is supported on these branches, 180 ft. above the ground.

Sound like Jerry was feeling no pain that day. If he had as many needles sticking out of him as he did sticking in him, he'd look like a damn porcupine.

not to split hairs over the message, but the earth day site says it is on 4-22 and not 4-20.

http://ww2.earthday.net/

Are there now competing earth days???

Anyway, I think it would be neat to celebrate earth day on 420; the two celebrations seem to go well together. A day to celebrate the earth on the same day we celebrate something that comes from the earth.

4:20 on 4-20: time to light-up!!!

Earth Day cannot be on 4/20........you buy all these fuggin saplings, then forget to plant them because your too stoned or too lazy.

4/21 is a day to recover from 4/20.....

So 4/22 sounds just exactly perfect.

In conclusion, I am bound to wake up on 4/23 and remember that yesterday was Earth Day. DOH!

yep, if they were on the same day I can see asking myself this question on monday: "and what did I buy those sapplings for?"

coming from allegheny national forest I do recall the arbor day tradition of planting trees. And I have planted more than a few trees on non-arbor days as well.
